The Parking Pass is designed to minimise our impact on the environment by reducing the number of vehicles coming to Splore, reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and making Splore less congested.
You must have a parking pass to access the on-site parking. The Parking Pass rewards carpooling and provides funds for affordable alternative transport. We first introduced the Parking Pass at Splore 2014, achieving a 25% reduction in the number vehicles on site. This was a huge win for sustainability and this year we’re hoping for an even better result.
Firstly decide whether you need to drive your car to Splore, if there’s an alternative transport option available or whether you can share a ride in someone else's vehicle. Join our Facebook Carpool Club to connect with other Sploerers looking for passenger and rides.
If you are going to drive then you need to buy Parking Pass, purchased in advance it's $50 per vehicle.
When you arrive at Splore with 3 or more people in your veghicle you will receive a refund of $35. So pack light and bring your mates. Vehicles that arrive with fewer than 3 people will not receive any refund.
There is a separate Parking Pass for standard passenger vehicles and another for camper vehicles. If you intend to camp in your vehicle or you are towing a caravan, please purchase a Camper Vehicle Parking Pass to gain access into the designated camper vehicle field as opposed to the standard vehicle car park where camping is not permitted.
Reserved Camper-Vehicle sites include parking so won't need an additional parking pass. All other reserved campers, Glampers and general admission campers must have a Parking Pass to gain vehicle access to the festival.
